No nonsense

New nourishment neighbourhood
never nibbled on Nigerian.

Mr. No Name, not nearly native,
nerdy but noble,
notified about navigating the novelties.
No unnecessary, no nebulous networking
Narratives not negotiated,
only numbers.
Not negative, no nudging, no nagging,
nice, neat and nippy.
No-brainer. Nailed it!
